Subject: Dark Star
This DS has some of the "Feelin' Groovy" elements of 11-02. Not quite as developed as that night, however. Pretty interesting, nonetheless.

Just a clean recording made even better. The boys are laid back, TC was always a great addition. Listen to the Airplane snippet prior to Dark Star, never can get enough Pig neither, for perfectionist, humble yourselves and dismiss the cuts before the tunes, a lot of tapers waited till the song started to save tape. That pause button always has the feel of the AUD recordings!!

Subject: Great Audience Recording!
The folks at MOTB have their SH!T together! This is an excellent audience recording, and made with only one microphone. Simply amazing! Do yourself a favor and click on the MOTB link that shows all the MOTB offerings on the Archive. Check out these shows:
7-2-89 FOB masterpiece
4-9-89 FOB wide stereo
8-6-71 Bertrando masterpiece (not MOTB)
